My green manure really took off with all the rain! We finally got some organic compost yesterday so we could prep the beds for planting. 

I pushed over the green manure

 covered it with hay

added the compost 

and then topped with more hay to protect it! 

Once the rain passes in a couple of days I can plant my seeds and seedlings!🙂  Excited to see what this new garden will offer!

 ✨💚✨

Dahlias

Nurseries are dangerous places for my budget! lol

 


Ooh that does sound really yummy with the orange and apple juice! 


And thanks for the tip with the honey :) Will do that next time!

Grateful for his bundle of healing goodness that my garden has gifted me! There is something so satisfying about gently digging out a clump of turmeric with such care that only a piece or two breaks off in the process. When I was cleaning the dirt out from around the rhizomes I found at least six big fat worms nestled in there! A sure sign of happy and healthy soil. 


My favourite way to use this fresh turmeric is to make a delicious hot drink with ginger, lemon, black pepper and honey! Here is the recipe: 

-1 tablespoon freshly grated turmeric

-1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

-the juice of 1 whole lemon

-pinch of cracked black pepper

-honey to taste (optional)

-3 cups of water


Put all the above ingredients into a small saucepan on medium-high heat. Stirring occasionally, bring to a simmer. As soon as it is simmering, turn off the heat and strain to remove pulp and large pieces of black pepper. Enjoy! Extra can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days.
